Matsuzaka reportedly on flight to Boston for physical. Looks like a preliminary agreement has possibly been reached. Sorry all you baseball fans out there. The BoSox just may have bought the next year's World Series with our new pitching and batting lineup.

Crossing my fingers a deal will be consummated.

Kinda funny contrast. You're waiting for the kids to come home from school while I'm waiting for one kid to come home from the Army and waiting for the other to decide if she's going back to school (Please God, let her see the light...ooops, sorry for the blatant religious reference). It's this time of year that I miss them being young the most. Having young ones in the house during the holidays cannot be beat. During those years, Christmas became a wonderous time again watching them anticipate Santa's arrival and watching Rudolph. Truly hope that everyone out there with children really enjoys themselves during the holidays and takes some time to see things through their kids' eyes, makes you remember what this is all really about.

Yeah, im trying to savor everymoment i can. Don't know how much longer the belief in Santa is going to last and it wont' be long before they become teenagers either. I've heard each stage in their growth may be wonderful, but, like you said, seeing things through their eyes, is tuly a magical experience and not one to be missed for anything in the world. I'm truly blessed with two wonderful beautiful little girls who bring me more joy than i ever thought possible.

May you have a truly happy holiday season my friend, and to all of you out there. Glad your son will be home to share the season with you and your family. That will surely be the Gift of the Season. And i hope and pray too that your daughter will make the best decision.

Thanks much for the update, this is excellent news. And I guess this can be tied to the religious overtones of some earlier posts by mentioning that Scott Boras is the Devil incarnate.

Agent from hell.

It'll be interesting to see what in the end the Red Sox agreed to sign "Dice-K" for...they were asking $8 Million a year ON TOP OF the $51 Million they bid just to talk w/Boras and the Japanese ace. (I mean, hey, he has to put his kids through college, right? Just ask "our" "Ace" ;-) Sprry, couldn't resist...

Anyway, if it's a done deal the Sawx have a pretty strong starting rotation next year that includes Dice-K, Schilling, Josh Beckett, Jonathan Paplebon (although if they don't sign a closer he may have to go back to that role), a healthy Tim Wakefield (we hope) and maybe even young John Lester, who happily seems to be in remission from lymphonal cancer he was diagnosed with at the end of last year.

Go Red Sox!!!!

thank god Boras and Epstein have a good working relationship (bizarre as it may be). If they actually do get this thing on paper (please, oh please), it should end up around 9 - 9.5 i would think for 5 or 6 years. my best guess anyways. pretty good quid for a guy who's never pitched in the majors.

hope the man can handle some pressure if they do sign him. nice rotation like you pointed out huh? they do need a closer though - Papelbon's shoulder can't handle the closer role for a full season.

I think the fact that he's on the plane coming to Boston pretty much means it's a lock. Despite all the posturing, everything i've been reading says Dice-K would have been a national embarrassment in Japan if he had held out over dollars --or yen--whatever....

apparently that simply would NOT have been acceptable to the fans there, who consider their star players going to the majors akin to seeing your kids graduate college with honors.

agreed on Paps...he needs to start, and it really does give them a killer rotation if he's in there....but you know Timlin can't close,so they still gotta figure something out there.

I realize this is useless whining, but its what we Boston fans are best at: What up with the Dolphins stealing our play calls in last weeks game? No wonder it looked like they had someone in our huddle the entire game.

I'm really just pissed that we didn't think of it first.

Well, stolen plays or not, the Fish always give the Pats fits (except for the AFC title game in 1986, and they did that on purpose just so we would get our asses handed to us by Da Bears in the Superbowl).

Hey, at least the Pats will (barring a meltdown) make the playoffs, while the Fish are gonna be on the outside of the bowl looking in...again.

Now if someone could magically fix the BRUINS.....

Couldn't agree more re: the Old Gah-den.

Smelled like piss, had rats running between the seats, and rocked like hell. No one had to prompt you w/crappy over-modulated "rock" music. Real fans knew when to cheer.

The new arena has absolutely no soul, just like the Bruins, and just like their owner (the WORST in all of sports). But having grown up worshipping Bobby Orr, Espo, Middleton, Boureque, Neely, etc., I can't help but still try and root for them. Wish jacobs would sell the team to an owner who cares but it's his cash cow and it'll never happen.

Amazing to me just how many DeadHead/RedSox/Pats/Bruins/Celts fans there are on this forum!

(Dead played some great shows at the old Garden, too, including one of the very best: 5/7/77

Grendel, it means a lot to me for somebody to say that. Thanks! Of course I'm biased, but I really believe that the Cardinal fans are among baseball's best. They rarely boo opposing players and teams. They behave themselves after the big wins. And they do respect the fans from opposing teams who come to watch the games at Busch.

For the most part, that is. Things do get a little dicey when the Cubs or Royals are in town.

But my favorite baseball memory is actually from New York. I had only moved to the city quite recently when I met a friend of a friend who, after a long conversation over a couple of libations, asked if I'd care to meet him in the bleachers up in The Bronx for game two of a twilight doubleheader against the Indians. So a couple of nights later, there I am, a guy from a small town in the Midwest, and I stepped off the train, walked into Yankee Stadium, grabbed a beer and a dog on my way into the cheap seats, and heard, "Hey, Bryan!" Wow, did I feel like I belonged.

The Yankees had already lost the first game. When I arrived in the third inning, they were well on their way to dropping the second one, too. And the natives were getting restless. It was beautiful. Gotta love New York.

Sorry BryanE, but i have to agree. The Cards fans are really some of the most friendly and welcoming fans in baseball. However, i would include KC fans as well. I've attended games in KC and was always amazed by the comfortable and friendly atmosphere - and this was back in the day when KC weren't your usual basement dwellers. I was so thrilled when St. Louis won the pennant this year, and i'm not even necessarily a fan of the team, but you just have to respect Tony L. A great guy, a great manager, and a great team.

I was there as well. As a Giant fan, though. But I'm done with those guys until Bonds is gone. I was so pissed when they re-signed him--at 16 mil, no less!!! In many ways, they run a pretty classy operation over there (with the exception of the Broom Ban) , but it's all negated by Bonds. I haven't been to a game in years, and barely watched them on TV last season. I'm a River Cat fan now (A's AAA team). Actually grew up an A's fan--the early 70's team are my favorite team ever. Hey--that kinda jibes with the whole post 77 thing. Wasn't 76 the last year that version of the A's made the postseason? Finley blew it all up in 77, I believe...

Yeah, Albert had a few grouchy post-season comments that seemed to be uncharacteristic of him. Even though he knows how to be a gracious player and give credit to the team and his fellow players instead of just being an arrogant, home run-hitting loudmouth, it seems that sometimes he needs to learn how to maintain control of his emotions and just grow up a little bit. Still, he gives a substantial chunk of those big paychecks that he makes to his foundation, helping families who have Down's Syndrome kids and also assisting the impoverished in his native Dominican Republic, so he deserves some positive recognition for that.

Oh, and by the way, Fish, the Cardinals and the Phillies had an even record of 3 & 3 against each other in '06, so that hardly guarantees that either of them would have won the division if they were lumped together.

Fever Pitch is an excellent movie, although a little too close to home in certain parts, the scariest being the scene where the season tickets are delivered and they are attempting to decide who goes to what games. My friends and I split two season tickets in the bleachers for a couple of years (pre-series of course) and each Spring there was the same kind of discussion over who got what.
"I'll give you 4 Mariners for 1 Yankees"
"Nope, that'll cost you at least 2 Baltimores, 2 Indians, 2 Angels, and 1 Mets Interleague"
Also, the song they play throughout the flick and during the final credits is a favorite band of mine, the Dropkick Murphys (Boston's own Celtic Folk & Punk band) doing "Tessie" an old song about the Sox winning the first modern World Series in 1903 over the Pirates.

Artist: Dropkick Murphys Lyrics
Song: Tessie Lyrics

Tessie is the Royal Rooters rally cry
Tessie is the tune they always sung
Tessie echoed April through October nights
After serenading Stahl, Dinneen and Young
Tessie is a maiden with a sparkling eye
Tessie is a maiden with a love
She doesn't know the meaning of her sight
She's got a comment full of love
And sometimes when the game is on the line
Tessie always carried them away
Up the road from third base to Huntington
The boys will always sing and sway

Two! Three! Four!

Tessie, Nuff Said McGreevey shouted
We're not here to mess around
Boston, you know we love you madly
Hear the crowd roar to your sound
Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
You know we couldn't live without you
Tessie, you are the only only only

The Rooters showed up at the grounds one day
They found their seats had all been sold
McGreevey led the charge into the park
Stormed the gates and put the game on hold
The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright
Boston's tenth man could not be wrong
Up from third base to Huntington
They'd sing another victory song

Two! Three! Four!

Tessie, Nuff Said McGreevey shouted
We're not here to mess around
Boston, you know we love you madly
Hear the crowd roar to your sound
Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
You know we couldn't live without you
Tessie, you are the only only only

The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright
Boston's tenth man could not be wrong
Up from third base to Huntington
They'd sing another victory song

Two! Three! Four!

Tessie, Nuff Said McGreevey shouted
We're not here to mess around
Boston, you know we love you madly
Hear the crowd roar to your sound
Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
You know we couldn't live without you
Boston, you are the only only only
Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
You know we couldn't live without you

Supposedly Jeter has not been speaking to A-ROD for a long time which is as close to the kiss of death as you can get in N.Y.
I wish the Yankees had not bailed on Soriano. I kind of lost interest once they started shuffling players like baseball cards.
I am down here in Tampa now and our baseball team really needs to switch over to the National League, although they did give the Red Sox's some trouble last year.
The D-rays big idea last year was to get this big giant aquarium tank out behind center field and put in some Sting RAYS, well that went o.k. until THE CROCIDILE HUNTER got done in by a Devil Ray while filming on a reef. It may be time for a mascot change.(Maybe they can put in a wave pool)
I always thought they ought to be called the Florida Orange Sunshine, You could play lots of sixties music and nobody would even notice that the management couldn't afford to go out and field a competitive team.
